Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

tom10101 (2212) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). Hazy blond with a medium fully lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is mostly of Belgian yeast along with fruity notes, bread and spices. Taste is slightly sweet with a lot of yeast, breadied malt, fruity notes and a gentle warming finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Textbook Tripel with a nice balance and some yeast complexity. Easily drinkable.

Bif (1292) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick head and good lacing. Aroma of fruit, yeast, bit of malt sweetness and spice. The taste is mildly sweet with a blend of fruit, malt, some yeast and a bit of orange peel. Has a subtle bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Body is pretty full, smooth and with plenty of character. Very well balanced. Quite an enjoyable beer that is a good example of the style.

domienS (67) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2014
Pours a clear blonde beer with a lot of saturation. Has a nice fine white head that stays for quite some time. Smells hoppy, fresh and fruity. Tastes bitter and hoppy. Leaves a nice balanced palate. Kind of sweet but really balanced with the hops. Great Belgian beer from a great brewery!

Gemiddelde trippel. Afdronk matig, smaak is OK. Kleur is goed. Heb betere bieren van deze brouwer gedronken.

cagou007 (248) - FRANCE - JAN 7, 2014
Pours a muddy yelow color with a medium white head. Nose is clearly yeasty and malty. Aromas are yeast, citrus, spices. Strange metalic aftertaste, but rather good tripel.

Bottle poured a murky orange hue w/ foamy bright white long lasting head. Bold malt and fruit aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light tart finish of short duration. Tastes are apricot, malt, caramel, bread, raisin, pineapple, and spices. Full bodied, light carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a warm finish.

Osprey87 (1154) - London via, WALES - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle BB 2015. Golden orange, highly sparkling with a very big foamy white head. Looks pretty good, like tripels tend to. Smell - sweet malts, candyfloss, slight grape juice and that generic spicy yeast character that many of these beers have. Body is medium, foamy. Carbonation is a bit spritzy on the tongue but not as much as the sparkling appearance suggests. Taste - sweet and malty, biscuity, the alcohol is quite prominent in the flavour but mixes in really well in the dry aftertaste. Not much else to report about the flavour. Overall, this is a solid, if unspectacular, tripel.
